alutron girl

A Poem by Mockingbird




just another alutron girl
hidden away in housewife, usa
i am a cog in this machine
where entropy is happening
and technology makes me
obsolete.

wreckless drivers
in monstrous vehicles
make speed limits
limitless.
i go as fast as them
but it's not fast enough.
i stare at trunks and plates
and wonder how this all fits
in the machine.

the chaos begins.

pills to keep me in my place
pills to keep the blues away
pills to get me through the day
pills to end a long hard day.

i'll try my best
to do my part
to keep the wheels turning
until i say it's over
until i say i'm through;

until then i'll be
just another alutron girl
calibrating
participating
wondering
when.

Wow I agree with this quite a bit. I love the emphasis in the one word lines at the end.
